Milkshakes for Dinner

This just in: The Nordstrom Rack in Orlando is aweeeeesome. Holy shoes! Holy dresses! Holy cute tops on clearance!

My mom raised me to be a bargain hunter. Almost all of my clothes come from the Banana Republic or J.Crew outlets, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, (a website with deeply discounted designer duds) or Off 5th (the Saks 5th Avenue Outlet). Sales and clearance racks are my friend, so I was in heaven when we arrived at Nordstrom Rack and I was surrounded by awesome deals.

I left with a cute and feminine white linen dress, and a classy coral short-sleeved jacket and a flower pin for clothing or in my hair.

Ryan even nabbed a few goodies, including a pair of Lacoste sunglasses for $40 and some awesome ‘80s gear for his bachelor party in two weeks.

Unfortunately I didn’t find any wedding day shoes (the whole purpose of the trip!), but we enjoyed browsing around the store anyway.

Dog Park

After our trip to Nordstrom Rack, we headed home. Within 30 minutes, Ryan left for soccer practice and Sadie and I headed to the dog park for an hour of puppy play time.

Sadie loved playing with the other dogs and jumping in and out of the lake. I had a good time chatting to a girl whose dog was half vizsla! It looked a lot like Sadie, but with a more square-like head. She was a sweetie pie!

The dog park is honestly one of my all-time favorite places in the entire world. Watching dogs just be dogs makes me so happy. They’re the most excitable, carefree animals and watching them romp around warms my heart.

Milkshakes for Dinner

Post-park, Sadie and I came home to meet back up with Ryan and get crackin’ in the kitchen.

Since Ryan was overheated from soccer practice and Sadie and I were still a little hot from the dog park, we decided to make healthified milkshakes for dinner.

I made myself a mango milkshake that packed a protein punch using frozen mango and EAS vanilla protein powder.

To make my milkshake I blended:

Milkshakes for dinner may have been the best idea I’ve had all month.

I think one day I should make myself a milkshake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Now that’s my kind of challenge. 😀
